At approximately 9 p.m. Friday night, deputies responded to 66119 Oak Street in the Mandeville area in reference to a domestic disturbance.
When deputies arrived, they located the female victim walking on Oak Street. Before she was transported to a local hospital by Fire District 4 for injuries sustained during the altercation with the male subject, she informed deputies that the suspect was armed with a shotgun and was still at the home.
